View of the Masonic Lodge being moved from Upper Wakefield to a site by the Wakefield Library in Edward Street, 1903. The building is being towed by a traction engine thought to be driven by C Shrouder. The view is from the railway crossing in Edward Street. The Station Master’s house in the background was known as Foresters Lodge because it held its early meetings in the Foresters Inn, which was established at what was then known as Upper Wakefield just south of the Jimmy Lee Bridge. When the present Wakefield was developed the Lodge was moved to its Edward Street site.
